Low Level Liberal Charged In Sudbury Byelection Scandal

Ontario Provincial Police have laid criminal charges against a top Sudbury Liberal activist in connection with the byelection scandal that rocked Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government earlier this year.

But police have cleared Pat Sorbara, Wynne’s deputy chief of staff, of any wrongdoing in the lead-up to the Feb. 5 byelection won by the Liberals.

Gerry Lougheed, chair of the Greater Sudbury Police Services Board, was charged with one count of counselling an offence not committed and one count of unlawfully influencing or negotiating appointments.

    That’s life for a low level liberal – you never know if you’ll be the one left holding the bag after Great Leader Kim Dong Wynne commits another foul deed.

    “But police have cleared Pat Sorbara, Wynne’s deputy chief of staff, of any wrongdoing in the lead-up to the Feb. 5 byelection won by the Liberals”.

    And rest assured that OPP union money going to the Ontario Liberals had nothing, nothing I say, with the fact that Pat Sorbara got off scott free. We are one big happy family.

    In the news today that a Liberal MPP in Ontario wants the words mother and father removed from all government documents. Gee what a surprise in Ontario’s government of perversion.

    Gee, what are the odds that the same Wynne that gave the OPP an 8.3% raise is the same one absolved of any blame for HER Liberal team in the pre-election.
